PADI’s Instructor Development Course (IDC) redefines the standard for instructor training. Coupled with PADI’s state-of-the-art educational materials, the PADI IDC allows you to learn quickly and effectively. It is the most comprehensive program in the industry.


The objective of the IDC is to prepare you for the PADI IE (Instructor Examination) and to prepare candidates for “Real World” teaching after the successful conclusion of the IDC/IE process.


During the course we will provide a varied curriculum of presentations, confined and open water workshops, discussions and candidate teaching presentations. We now run the IDC in a variety of formats to suit candidates differing lifestyles and preferences.
